    Pat White could do neither well.

    If I had my choice it would be baseball.

    Longer careers, less bodily strain, and GUARANTEED contracts

    BTW that's not dementia he's experiencing. It's just the beliefs of the Mormonism cult. He just thinks its dementia

    Well they said Benoit's brain was that of an extremely elderly man with alzheimers and dementia and that it was probably that way from concussions and blows to the head due to wrestling.

    I don't regret playing football; I just wish I wouldn't have given up on baseball for it. I definitely have lingering effects from concussions/broken bones, but I don't mind being reminded of some of the best times of my life through a little pain..

    I know I probably won't let my kids play football until atleast junior high. Letting a child that is only 5 or 6 years old play this sport just isn't very smart IMO...their brains aren't developed enough...I will tell my kids to enjoy football but if they ever want to go to the next level in a sport, baseball is the way to go.

    Not football related but wish I quit my last job much earlier and I might have a working heart now.

    Pretty sure I have my shoulder injury from football (or cricket). Whenever I throw a ball, I get a sharp pain in my shoulder and it goes dead for 30secs-1min. I can't lift it.
